People: Ya Gotta Love 'Em

There are basically four types of people in America these days:

1. There are those that don’t know and don’t care, the ignorant and apathetic among us… They watch Jerry Springer and WWE and every other reality TV show out there. They know the cost of gas, bread, milk and toilet paper are going up but they cannot quite grasp the concept, any concept...

2. Then there are the people to the right of Rush Limbaugh and his clones. Greed is good, never saw a smokestack they didn’t like. They are big business is good, government is bad type of people. They think rest of us should just get off our lazy asses and get a job. These people are so self-assured they don't even recognize that they're delusional.

3. Conversely there are the left-wing lunatics who want electric cars but don’t want coal or nuclear power plants for electrical production, they think we can pull electricity out of our ass… They are government is good, big business is bad type of people. It's entirely possible these people are mentally retarded.

4. Then there are the rest... Maybe a little off center to the left or to the right but understand they are being screwed by government AND big business. They marvel at the way each side plays them off the other. In reality government and business elites are in deep collusion to enrich themselves and their constituents. These basically decent people like to laugh at, or more likely, heap scorn on the other types of people, but in the end the joke is actually on them.

So which type are you? I'd like to think I'm a #4, but... My friends and family might say otherwise!

I'm so confused, I thought there were only three kinds of people. Those who can count and those who can't.
